Grapefruit oil is naturally high in antioxidants and phytochemicals. These reduce oxidative stress and disease-causing inflammation. Many of grapefruit essential oil’s benefits are due to one of its main constituents called limonene. This makes up about 88 percent to 95 percent of the oil. Known to be a tumor fighting, cancer preventative phytochemical, Limonene protects DNA and cells from damage. In addition to limonene, grapefruit essential oil contains other powerful antioxidants, including vitamin C, myrcene, terpinene, pinene and citronellol.

A Guide To Using Essential Oils
Highly rated guide for people looking to incorporate essential oils into their health regime. Read the rave reviews here
The only negative comment (so far) was that it didn’t have recipes in it. From what I understand about essential oils the work most effectively as they are absorbed into the skin. They can also help used in a diffuser. Though I like to incorporate them into goats milk soap, I’m not convinced that they retain their medicinal properties that way.
That said the best way to use essential oils for maximum absorption is topically . Your skin, after all, is the largest organ in your body. I also understand rubbing essential oils onto your feet allows the oils medical properties to reach the area needing help.
This chart gives you an idea of where to place the oil in order to reach the desired area. Personally, I like to do this at night. Not sure why, but in my mind, because you are laying down, it might allow the essential oils to move more freely.
